The Charge:



A call for the annual Beam Use Request (BUR) has been sent from the BNL ALD to RHIC collaborations on February 22nd, 2017:

Dear RHIC Spokespersons:

I am writing to request that you submit the annual Beam Use Request for the RHIC runs in 2018 and 2019 and related material.

We current[ly] anticipate, assuming favorable budget conditions, runs of 15 cryo-weeks (including 2 weeks for the Coherent electron Cooling test)

in FY2018 and 24 cryo-weeks each in FY2019 and FY2020. Less favorable,

but still likely, budget conditions would only allow for a combined run of 20 cryo-weeks in FY2019/FY2020. The beam use request should consider both possibilities.

The submissions are due by May 15, 2017. Since PHENIX has ended data taking and sPHENIX has not yet started construction, I expect to receive a BUR from STAR only.

I also ask STAR and PHENIX to report on the status of analyses of data from previous RHIC runs, especially the runs in 2014-16.

In addition, I invite the STAR and sPHENIX Collaborations to present letters of intent for proposals of modest forward upgrades to their detectors for data taking after 2021 for consideration by the PAC.

The dates for this year’s RHIC PAC meeting are June 15-16, 2017. A list of current PAC members is attached for your information.

Thanks in advance,
